Can any one patiently explain why JAKK lost over $2 today given this earnings report?

In the conference call, Jack Friedman (CEO) asked the analyst the same question (unbelievably). The analysts reply was that the raw numbers reflected a decrease in gross margins that was not readily explainable. During the CC, a lot of time was spent explaining that JAKK incurred substantial non-recurring air freight charges in order to get some product to the domestic market quickly. Apparently, some little kids couldn't wait to get their hands on some Gooze. The analysts said that Friedman did a good job alleviating concerns, and hinted that the price would rebound.

Of course, the rebound hasn't happened, and JAKK is down today. Why? I'm all out of lifelines.
